CSM Arthur Reginald Tweddell (Distinguished Conduct Medal, Military Medal and Bar) was a Foundation Member of the Caloundra RSL. 

He served with distinction in the 15th and 47th Battalions in France and Belgium during World War 1. His citation for the Distinguished Conduct Medal reads:

During attack on final objective East of Messines on June 7, 1917, a party was specially called for to attack an enemy strong point. Corpl. TWEDDELL volunteered to lead it and reached it first. 

Without waiting to see if any others were with him, he charged the nearest German, killed him, and so demoralised the others that 17 Germans surrendered to Corporal TWEDDELL’S party.
